brown other than -- which scott brown tweeted late at night on saturday in the midst of a spring of misspelled and combative late night tweets where he picked late night fights on twitter, he then deleted the late-night tweets and refused to talk about them. he has avoided all comments on what is going on there. scott brown has finally become the most popular thing about him online. joining us now is steve kornacki, senior writer for salon. it is great to see you. >> great to be here. >> total speculation. do you think scott brown's late-night tweets that sort of seem like drunk tweets, but which don't know and then deleting them and refutesing to comment about it, do you think it's less likely he is going to declare for the seat if he was legitimately conflicted about it? >> i think all indications are that he is going to go. it's not necessarily the smartest political decision. i think the smartest political decision is 2014 governor's race in massachusetts for a whole host of reasons. but behind the scenes you start talking to republicans of massachusetts, they say that he and

in their power to keep scott brown out of that seat. >> that's what i wanted to talk about next. how are they going to do that? a lot of people are speculating it's his chance to make a political comeback. >> in politics, one of the most important things is name i.d. he's been a senator. and actually a relatively popular one. scott brown did more damage to himself running for office than he ever did in office. when he was in office, he made some unpop r lar votes but his approval rating wasn't that bad. he was recently in the game and does have the name recognition. on the other hand, he did damage to himself running elizabeth warren. he came across in a negative way. the last impression he left on voters wasn't that positive. and democrats are raising a ton of money. they are going to raise as much money as it it takes to try to deny him a return to the the senate. >> joy-ann reid, thank you for your perspective. hopefully you can go back to sleep now. >> thank you. >>> here's your first look at other news around america. we start in ohio. a courtroom attack was captured on camera.

to be the placeholder, there's going to be a special election. scott brown, former massachusetts senator that was beaten by elizabeth warren leaning strongly towards running in the race and this new poll showing brown could crush ed markey if the race were held today. there anyone with star power to take down scott power if he throws his hat into the ring? >> the primary will be april 30th and election will be june 25th. ed markey looks like the person who will emerge as the democratic kabd candidate. it's always difficult for a member of congress because they are only known in their neck of the woods so to speak to gain statewide influence. it's difference also than a presidential election when scott brown had a difficult time beating elizabeth warren because about 200,000 barack obama voters would have had had to vote for scott brown. most people thought scott brown would hold out and run for governor but i think seeing these poll numbers has pushed him back into wanting to run for his old job. >> we want to remind everybody, john kerry, sailing to confirmation yesterday, 94-3, with only senators ted

their actions are always so responsible. senator warren's opponent in the recent election was scott brown, who was the top beneficiary of the donations in the senate. but scott brown lost, and lost to elizabeth warren. and so today it was elizabeth warren and not scott brown, opening up her new office in massachusetts, a new senator who represents the state of massachusetts, who is not wall street's favorite senator, like scott brown was. and who has a perch that can argue that they would probably make unopposed. elections, consequences. tada! >>> best new thing in the world today, the 2012 presidential election was famously tough on pollsters, but the democratic leaning firm, public policy polling did better than most, correctly predicting the presidential outcome in all the states. they are accurate, we know that from experience, but the other thing to know about ppp is that they're the only sound political polling firm in the country are the regularly out loud funny. they once asked people in pennsylvania, do you have enough santorum in your life or not? they asked michigan people, do you t

for former senator scott brown with an eight-point lead over the democratic party's generic candidate. then a 20-point lead over the democratic senatorial committee's preference. brown hasn't made any real decisions on this yet, mark. realistically with all this talk it seems like he's in this race. what are his chances? >> he still hasn't made up his mind yet. there is thinking he might decide to run for governor instead of for senate. the polls show scott brown to be in a very good position. and he would give republicans the best opportunity to pick that seat. however, when you look -- when you chat with a lot of democrats they believe the reason scott brown got elected in 2010 was a confluence of events that might not repeat themselves this year. >> nbc's mark murray in d.c. for us. thank you. >>> just ahead, the kid friendly gun campaign. gun makers are pouring millions of dollars into ads aimed at your kids. dan gross with the brady campaign and congresswoman jackie spear way in on that. >>> plus, state of emergency. protests and violence rage on in egypt despite the attempts to

giving up his senate seat it clears for an election which could have a comeback for scott brown. every senate seat is precious in holding on their their majority. and it's going to be challenging. so why risk giving one away in a blue state especially to a guy they spent the last two years trying to take out? i have a hunch and it's nothing more than a hunch, the democrats are worrying about the wrong thing here. that brown won't end up running to replace john kerry and has a different comeback in mind. brown was last seen losing to elizabeth warren by eight points. but remaining quite popular. warren believe it or not is less popular. her favorable score in the same poll came in at 54% to 37%. this speaks to the central reason brown lost. massachusetts voters do not like the national republican party. they have not elected a republican to the house since 1994 making massachusetts the biggest state in the country with an all democratic delegation. and they've only elected one republican to the senate in 40 years. brown back in that 2010 special election to fill ted kennedy's seat. or,

before we go, real quick, ed markey, your colleague, can he beat scott brown? >> i think so, and the issue is this, in 2010, scott brown was a very decent guy, but a member of this very right-wing party. he's got this problem in massachusetts, especially since in 2010 it was his election that really harolderalded a lot of problems for president obama. massachusetts vote ed overwhel overwhelmingly for president obama. running as a representative for the republican party in the senate to ask for a repudiation of barack obama is a problem. >> going to be fascinating. >> this is not just ed markey on the ballot. this is president obama and ed markey, and i think the people of massachusetts are unlikely to, in effect, reverse their vote of just a couple months ago. >> it's an all boston college race with scott brown and ed markey, the school you represented for over, i believe, 30 years. >> 32. >> thanks for being on the show. we appreciate it. >> thank you, luke. >>> we'll be right back here on msnbc, the place for politics. don't go anywhere. >>> i'm luke russert live from wash
Jan 8, 2013 7:00pm PST
it right now. scott brown probably wouldn't even run against ed markey. scott brown would be much happier running for governor when duval patrick leaves office next year, a race scott brown would have a much better chance of winning, and a job he would love. i mean, love, compared to the senate which according to my sources he doesn't really like. so it is settled. ed markey will be the next elected senator from massachusetts. but who, who is the governor going to appoint in the meantime? the pointed senator will have crucial work to do on the next debt ceiling crisis, on the next round of budget negotiations with republicans. all of that action will be focused in the senate finance committee, which has jurisdiction not over just the debt ceiling but over medicaid, medicare social security which republicans want to put into play. ideally the appointed senator would take john kerry's seat on the senate finance committee, and ideally the appointed senator would know exactly how that committee works and how the senate works on day one. because ideally the appointed senator would be a former

ed markey, so is scott brown going to throw his hat in the ring. >> it's possible. scott brown is faced with a choice, he can either run for the senate seat or try running for the governor again. it's really a tough decision for him because if he loses another state wide race, it's going to be really hard for him to get back into politics. scott brown jumps into the senate race. democrats are coal lessing behind congressman head markey, the dean at the massachusetts delegation, he's been there for some time. he has not seen a tough race for about three decades. so it could be a real good one or it can be really boring. >> the big race is for virginia governor, where we have two very interesting characters, right? >> absolutely. capitol hill reporters like myself love this race because first of all it's only about three stoplights away on 395. and secondly because the cast of characters is just so june neek. you have these two partisan generals, running as a filed republican -- former dnc chair is a democrat taking his second stab at this race, it's going to be very interesting

senator who just lost to elizabeth warren, the associated press is reporting that scott brown is "leaning strongly towards running" likely to enter the race next week. they quoted an anonymous republican source close to the senator. that said, the named spokesperson for the senator later told the boston tv station wcbb that that reporting was incorrect. but the spokesperson would not elaborate. so yeah, there is that. want to see the weird tweets that scott brown posted and then deleted after i posted them to millions of people. there they are, whatever, scott brown, you're amazing, there is the question of who will fill the senate seat until the special election. former congressman barney frank has said publicly he would like to hold the job for the interim position. tomorrow, massachusetts governor patrick will announce if he will make an interim appointment of barney frank, or somebody else. the widow of ted kennedy is on the short list, as well. before the vote today, several senators gave tribute to the out-going secretary of state, hillary clinton, she has been a fascinating secreta

brown other than -- which scott brown tweeted late at night on scott brown, 2010 in that special election is the only time since ed brook in 1972 that massachusetts has elected a republican to the senate. and not since 1994 in the gingrich landslide when two slipped in have massachusetts elected a republican to federal office of any kind. >> and there is a reason why. and the state is getting more blue, not less blue over time. >> right. >> let me ask you about a broader picture. "the miami herald" reported on an fbi raid on the office of a long-time supporter of new jersey democratic senator bob menendez. the senator is denying any wrongdoing. but is that rattling new jersey politics enough? is there enough noise around senator bob menendez that potentially his seat is worth thinking about on either side? >> there is a lot of concern, yes, among democrats there is a lot of confusion about what exactly has happened here. it's worth pointing out that menendez has sort of been down this road before. it did not involve prostitution or anything sa for his seat, it leaked from the u.s

, only democrat thus far that wants the seat. officials close to scott brown said that brown is leaning strongly towards running and will likely enter the race next week. david carr, how about appointing your chief of staff to fill a vacant senate seat, is that a good idea? >> if i were, say, the mayor of new york city, i might turn toward the deputy mayor and say, you know what, i'm about done, and i know you know where all the buttons are, howard, please, take over and run this. >> new york city can only hope, howard. >> big shoes, big shoes. don't want to fill those big shoes. >> who's your call, brown, ma h markey? >> i think he'll lightly support brown again. he's been the kind ever, in our opinion, the kind of moderate republican we need more of in the senate. again, friends of ours in the left will not be happy about that, but if we're talking about the value of bipartisanship, having a republican is a good thing. >> i don't think scott brown is a moderate republican. we've had this passionate conversation about the lineup, but let me get passionate about something, i don't thin

and will will drop to five if scott brown wins this june. the obvious path to a gop majority in 2014 would be the states that mitt romney carried november. that's west virginia, south dakota, alaska, alabama, louisiana, iowa and should be a toss-up now and long-time democratic senator and calling it quits. democrats should lose seats in 2014. and could lose the chamber. and democrats ended up adding to their majority. and the suicide club. that might be the real story to watch in the coming months. by nominating unelectable fringe candidates, will the gop squander winnable races? let's spin about this. we talked a little bit about massachusetts yesterday. maybe scott brown wins and the republicans gate seat. the situation in new jersey, who knows what's going on there? maybe christie makes an appointment. maybe democrats win it back. but i think the real question to me and an unknown and sort of a great drama to watch over a few months and years is take a look at the races republicans need to win in 2014 to get the chamber back. here's a great example, alaska. mark begich, barely won again

and scott brown was supposed to be the 41st vote against that, and the department of justice didn't uphold the defense of marriage act. weakening welfare work requirements, pushing through the contraception mandate. is this what it was intended for? >> executive orders? >> yes. >> no, executive orders are directions to the executive branch of government, agencies to do things that they are legally authorized to do and not to do things that they might have discretion to do, but that he feels as a matter of policy they shouldn't do. the -- taking a whole class of cases, for example, in the immigration situation, and telling the justice department essentially not to enforce the immigration laws is not what executive orders really are for. but that's really separate and different from what is going on today. >> sean: i totally and completely agree, but we have co-equal branches of government, right? so explain to all of us, if congress has a role, the president doesn't get the dream act passed, scott brown's elected to stop obamacare, and then they just use the reconciliation process, it seems
